Looks like a two piece pic or weaver. I can't seem to find them.

Don't know what the mount set up is, but it sure is ugly!

I’m honestly not sure. I’ve not seen them before, but I’d like to know as well.

There's only so many options for a fieldcraft... when you rule out Talley lightweights you gotta make some sacrifices in the looks department.

Are you talking about the actual base or what looks to be a piece between the base & ring?

Two piece base could be a chopped up one piece rail?

Just looking at the base.


I suppose it's possible it's a chopped rail.

Wondered that. Or another two piece with hole spacing that was modified?
I don’t recall two piece bases ever being offered (at least not that I was aware of.)
I think you and I may have even discussed making some over pm.

Agreed - looks like a chopped Talley rail.

IMO, Talley rail, chopped. I have yet to find a two-piece Weaver for the Fieldcraft. They made a mistake by cutting it to eliminate the third screw in the front.

Have a rail on mine now, with 1” and 30mm Talleys in reserve. The rail is a bit too high, so I may go back to the LWs.


What fresh Hell is this?

I have 30mm Talley at the moment. Kinda lost faith in them. Had a poi shift after a long ride in the pickup and some bumpy roads.

Planning on a Talley rail and Ken Farrell rings. Should be almost as low.

From top of receiver to bottom of scope tube.
Talley 30mm low .40"
Rail and rings .504"(I think...if I did my math right)

I used Warne Mountain Tech rings. Planning on transitioning to them on my other rifles from the Burris, which are a PITA to remove and replace.[Linked Image]

I like how the mountain tech look, wish they were lower.
I'm pretty set on Ken Farrell or Apa lows.

From what I remembered, I tried both leupold and tally rails with leupold PRW low rings and with that configuration I found myself wanting lower, so I had to switch to Talley LW’s.

Dakota- report back with your findings with that rail and ring combo.

Will do. Ordered the talley rail. Just have to decide if I want to do the Farrell rings or find a used set of apa...out of stock everywhere. Dragging my feet on the Farrell...they're steel.

If you just bolt 'em on, you can very well have issues. Done correctly, the Talley's won't give any trouble.-Al

Al,

Do you have a tutorial on how to correctly mount talleys?

I recall seeing your method but couldn’t find the post. Thanks
